Dear Sir/Madam, I am writing to complain about an article in last

Dear Sir/Madam,
I am writing to complain about an article in last
Monday’s newspaper, “Schools fail low-income children.” As the head teacher of one of the largest junior high schools in the city, I feel strongly that the article does not describe our school.
My school has children from many diferent economic backgrounds, but a large percentage come from lower­income families. Nevertheless, our tests show that the children do well and benefit from the excellent work our teachers do. Last year our school moved from 24th to 5th place according to the official assessment by the state government. This is clearly not the “failure” that the article suggests.
I would strongly recommend that more careful research should be conducted in the future so that your newspaper will more realistically describe the true situation in our schools.

Yours sincerely.
Joan Gonzalez
